Simple solution to not being allowed to kneel in the Nfl

Change it to something else

Maybe cross arms in solidarity

Maybe turn there backs on the crowd

Heck, there is a number of things that they do.

Make them keep changing the rules-

F&ck them

3. Every team should sit down on the field before the first play and refuse to play

That would get everyone's attention

4. I suggest this:

 

Two brave athletes eloquently speaking their truth supported by their brave and very, very woke ally.

6. Until they stop killing black people, it's all a bullshit fake problem

All this fake outrage over pretending that kneeling before a football game is, suddenly and unlike in every other kneeling situation, offensive is all one giant excuse to smack down black people for whining about getting shot by the police.

Come up with any solution you want to the kneeling "problem", it's all bullshit because it's a fake problem. They'll happily keep changing the rules as long as they don't have to do anything about black people getying killed by the police.

Sorry for being strident but don't let the frame the debate. The kneeling is to get us talking about black peoples getting killed by the police, not to get us talking about the niceties or protesting.

8. Great idea linking arms, maybe even with the left hand, instead of the right hand, over the heart

for an added touch of solidarity. Who the fuck could object to that?!

10. Apparently it is

"any form of protest" that will incur a fine.

11. I suggest "assuming the position"

Hands up, clasped on the backs of their heads. I think that message would be clear. Maybe those protesting could write DON'T SHOOT on the backs of their hands as below, readable only when they're clasped.

Left hand Right hand
DO N'T
SH OOT

13. Any form of protest?

Seems subjective and ambiguous.
